Dance Parade

So, last Sunday, I went to Chinatown in Yokohama to see the Dance Parade

It was super crowded. So crowded that, at first, I can’t see anything but people’s heads.

The good thing is, it’s a parade, so they move around and will get back to the same spot.

So, I wait for them to return. I manage to ‘secure’ a spot. But, when they come the second time, it was still crowded so I can’t really move from my spot. This is one of the occasion where zoom lens would perform better than prime. But no worries, I’m still quite happy with the photos that I get at the end of the day.

Anyway, for your viewing pleasure, here are the photos.

    • Glad that you enjoyed them, Georgie.
      Yeah, I just changed it about 2 hours ago. It’s the same theme — I only change the background color.

    • Yeah, it was fine — quite fun, actually.
      I would assume the one in Singapore was bigger than here. Looking forward to see the video, Pul. Cheers!

        • Thanks, Pul. The one in Singapore is definitely ‘bigger’ than the one in Yokohama. Thanks for sharing, Pul :-)… cheers!
